“We hung around in the first half but I feel we gave the game away,” said head coach Oliver Weiss. “We did not have much spirit and we did not show a will to win tonight. Compared to the match on Tuesday, it was the complete opposite.”
In the first half the Hokies held the Terrapins scoreless and concluded the period tied 0-0.
The Terrapins lit up the scoreboard early in the second period, taking a 1-0 lead in the 53rd minute. Terrapin junior Jeremy Hall scored off a head ball to beat St. Germain for his sixth goal of the season. Hall was back at it nearly three minutes later. The junior scored his second goal and his seventh on the season, heading the ball to the back of the net in the 56th minute of play to give the Terrapins a 2-0 advantage.
Tech took its first shot of the match from the foot of freshman Tobias Hottner in the second half and added two more in the same period. The Hokies were awarded three corner kicks in the contest, with two coming in the second period of play.
Tech will take the pitch, on Tuesday October 14, when they step out of conference play to take on UMBC at Sandra D. Thompson Field at 7 p.m.
